Museum Hosts Lecture On Tobacco And Culture

www.online-cigarettes-shop.com, 14 July 2014 [cached]

With the Autumn Leaves Festival as a backdrop, history buffs and festival attendees gathered in the Mount Airy Museum of Regional History courtyard Sunday afternoon to hear Billy Yeargin deliver a lecture about cheap cigarettes and American culture.

Yeargin, a professor with extensive knowledge of the history of the discount cigarette online industry, was the guest speaker for the October "History Talks" program at the museum. He spoke at 2 p.m. on Sunday about tobacco's impact on Amerian society over the years.
Though the event was originally scheduled to be held inside the museum, organizers decided to move it outside to the courtyard where many festival-goers sat throughout the weekend to eat and socialize. Some people who visited the courtyard on Sunday were surprised to find that a lecture was taking place there, and they stopped to listen while they ate festival treats.
Yeargin said prior to the event, "I love the festival atmosphere.
...
Yeargin said that up until the French and Indian War, tobacco was used as a currency in North America. He said many of the founding fathers were tobacco farmers.
"Tobacco was the backbone, not just of the economy, but of culture and society," he remarked.
Yeargin also talked about different types of tobacco and techniques that were developed over the years. He then spoke about the tobacco industry in Surry County and what it still means today. According to Yeargin, there were 21 plants for tobacco production in Surry County in 1893, and that grew to 45 in 1927, which employed 2,875 people here.
"Tobacco ruled the roost in the county," he said. Tobacco is still a multi-million dollar industry in the county, he noted, though tobacco culture has declined.
...
Yeargin spoke a little bit about the history of the chant and gave a short demonstration.
...
According to information provided by the museum, Yeargin teaches U.S. history at Johnston Community College and Vance-Granville Community College and teaches Southern culture for Osher Lifelong Learning program at Duke University. He was former executive director of the Tobacco Growers Information Committee, was a spokesman for the U.S. Tobacco Growers, was agriculture liaison to former N.C. Governor James Hunt Jr., and created and directed the World Tobacco Auctioneers Championship for R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company. He has also been executive director of the N.C. Sweet Potato Commission. He graduated from Oak Ridge Military Academy, holds an M.A. in Liberal Studies from Duke University and has studied European history and politics at the University of Oxford. He has published two books on N.C. tobacco culture: North Carolina Tobacco, a History and Remembering North Carolina Tobacco.

The annual Rockford Memorial Day Service will be held on May 24, 2014 at 3 p.m. at the Rockford Methodist Church in the Historic Village of Rockford.
This year's program entitled "Robert E. Lee: The Autumn of His Life" will be presented by Billy Yeargin, Road Scholar with the North Carolina Humanities Council. The program is free and open to the public.
"Robert E Lee: The Autumn of His Life" will take the audience on a personal journey with Lee, a man of character and spiritual dedication, as he took his place in American culture and history, a place where he was afforded the opportunity to address his passion of nurturing the reconciliation and growth of others," said Yeargin. "While the greater part of Robert E. Lee's adult life was spent in military pursuits, Lee chose to spend his final years developing the minds, character, and strength of young students as President of Washington College, a small campus in Lexington, Virginia.
Yeargin indicated he feels the dedication Lee displayed as the leader of a growing collection of aspiring students, from both north and south, spoke louder, stronger, and certainly much longer, toward assuring a proud future for a wounded American society.
